The World Cup Stadium at La Pirogue

June 14 2018

2018 is sure to be a thrilling year for football. Why? You guessed it, because it’s a FIFA World Cup year. Whether you are an avid football fan or simply love to get swept up in the magic of this global event, you are probably going to want to watch a few of the biggest games, in fact, there are some that you just can’t miss! And with the start of the FIFA World Cup in Russia just around the corner, football fever is starting to hit as the days are counted down and the excitement for this unbelievable event mounts. A truly remarkable event, this year’s football spectacle, which is set to kick off on the 14th of June, will be held in the enigmatic country of Russia; a destination of intrigue and wonder, of Russian dolls and enchanting architecture, of white nights and vodka - there’s no doubt that this is a fascinating backdrop for one of the world’s most anticipated and watched events. 

The FIFA World Cup is an outstanding sporting event. Not only does it showcase some of the world’s best football teams and talent in oftentimes exhilarating matches (the nail-biting final between France and Italy in 2006 comes to mind) but it brings together people from all over the world and all walks of life. From the townships of South Africa to high-end Parisian cafes and exclusive events, people can come together and share their love for football and for their countries. Even people from countries that don’t qualify for the tournament love to join in the fun, supporting another special team as if it was their own. 

It’s (generally) a time of acceptance, a time where strangers become friends and a type of solidarity takes place where language and belief systems are transcended as we unite in our love for this wonderful global event. The experience is nothing short of exhilarating. Whether you are a football (soccer/calcio/futbol or voetbal) fan or not, there’s no denying that this is an enthralling tournament, one that even the most uninterested viewers get passionate about.  

As final preparations take place for the big event, you may be wondering what this year’s FIFA World Cup may look like for you - where will you be enjoying this sensational tournament?
